1 Test Your Knowledge of… A review activity Earth Science

2 Get ready… Here comes your first question.

3 The shape of land can be changed by… a)weathering and erosionweathering and erosion b)heat and pressureheat and pressure c)coolingcooling d)sedimentsediment

4 The shape of land can be changed by weathering and erosion. Correct Next question

5 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

6 Which of the following statements is true? a)All rocks weather at the same rate.All rocks weather at the same rate. b)All rocks weather, but not at the same rate.All rocks weather, but not at the same rate. c)Some rocks weather, while others do not.Some rocks weather, while others do not. d)Rocks do not weather.Rocks do not weather.

7 Correct True: All rocks weather, but not at the same rate. Some rocks are made of softer materials; some rocks are harder. Next question

8 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

9 The breaking apart of rocks into smaller pieces is called … a. erosion erosion b. deposition deposition c. weathering weathering d. transposition transposition

10 The breaking apart of rocks into smaller pieces is called weathering. Wind, water, ice, and plant roots are all responsible for weathering rock materials. Next questionCorrect

11 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

12 Which of these is NOT a force that causes erosion? a)airair b)iceice c)waterwater d)windwind

13 Correct Air is NOT a force that causes erosion. (Wind, water, ice, and gravity are the forces of erosion.) Next question

14 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

15 The process which acts upon sediment to form sedimentary rocks is… a.heateat b.coolingcooling c.pressurepressure d.all of theseall of these

16 The process which acts upon sediment to form sedimentary rocks is pressure. Sedimentary rock is formed by layers of sediment pressing down on each other, cementing the layers together. Next questionCorrect

17 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

18 The moving away of weathered pieces of rock is referred to as … a) depositiondeposition b) weathering weathering c) erosionerosion d) transportationtransportation

19 The moving away of weathered pieces of rock is referred to as erosion. Correct Next question

20 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

21 A glacier can be a destructive force because… a) it scrapes away landit scrapes away land b) it forms lakesit forms lakes c) it is a large river of frozen ice it is a large river of frozen ice d) it moves very slowly it moves very slowly

22 A glacier can be a destructive force because it scrapes away land. Correct Correct Next question

23 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

24 Scientists use all of the following to learn about Earth’s past EXCEPT… a)What materials are found in different layers of sedimentWhat materials are found in different layers of sediment b)What kinds of rocks are in an areaWhat kinds of rocks are in an area c)Tree ring sizeTree ring size d)The moon phase cyclesThe moon phase cycles

25 Scientists use all of the following to learn about Earth’s past EXCEPT moon phase cycles. Correct Next question

26 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

27 Which of these could be considered a positive effect of erosion? a) washing away trees from a farmer’s fieldwashing away trees from a farmer’s field b) damming a river with fallen logs damming a river with fallen logs c) forming a delta at a river’s mouthforming a delta at a river’s mouth d) topsoil being washed awaytopsoil being washed away

28 Correct Forming a delta at a river’s mouth could be considered a positive effect of erosion. Next question

29 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

30 All of the following are true about the moon EXCEPT… a)The moon is smaller than earth.The moon is smaller than earth. b)The moon has less gravity than earth.The moon has less gravity than earth. c)Rocks weather and erode on the moon.Rocks weather and erode on the moon. d) Mountains can be found on the moon.Mountains can be found on the moon.

31 Correct All are true about the moon EXCEPT rocks weather and erode on the moon. Rocks do not weather and erode because the moon does not have any forces of weathering or erosion – wind, ice, water, or plants. Next question

32 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

33 Wind is mostly caused by… a)the uneven heating of the earththe uneven heating of the earth b)precipitationprecipitation c)moving airmoving air d)water heating up faster than landwater heating up faster than land

34 Wind is mostly caused by the uneven heating of the earth’s surface. Correct Next question

35 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

36 Inexhaustible resources... a)took millions of years to create.ook millions of years to create. b)come from the earth’s surface.come from the earth’s surface. c)cannot be used up.annot be used up. d)move in a cycle.ove in a cycle.

37 Inexhaustible resources cannot be used up. Wind, sunlight, and ocean tides will be around forever without having to be replenished. Correct Correct. Next question

38 SORRY That answer is not correct. Please try again. Back to question

39 Thanks for playing!
